AARP - Medicare Supplement Plans



Value Added Services

Because Medicare supplement plans are standardized, one of the ways (aside from premium) that AARP differentiates themselves in the market is through our value-added services.

Plan members can receive the following additional services at no additional cost. These services are separate from the Medicare supplement plan benefits, may be discontinued at any time and vary by state.


The 24-hour Nurse HealthLine

AARP Medicare Supplement Insurance members can call toll-free to speak directly with a registered nurse about their health concerns 24 hours a day, seven days a week through the Nurse HealthLine provided by OptumHealth.SM

Nurse HealthLine offers:
  • Treatment decision support
  • Information on doctors and hospitals
  • The ability to schedule appointments and coordinate medical records
  • Help deciding whether to see a doctor or go to a hospital
  • Prescription and medication information
  • Health education and self-help tips
  • Audio library that offers recorded messages on more than 1,100 health and wellness topics
  • English- and Spanish-speaking nurses and translations in more than 140 languages

Note: OptumHealth is the provider of Nurse HealthLine.OptumHealth nurses cannot diagnose problems nor recommend specific treatment and are not a substitute for a doctor’s care. This service is not an insurance program and may be discontinued at any time. All decisions about health and wellness care are between members and their health care providers.

AARP® Vision Discounts

AARP Medicare Supplement Insurance members receive immediate savings on routine eye exams ($40 copayment per vision exam) and/or eyewear at participating stores, including LensCrafters, Pearle Vision, Sears Optical, Target Optical and JCPenney Optical stores. The AARP Vision Discount program is provided by EyeMed Vision Care.

Pharmacy Savings

This program can help with:
  • Prescription drugs through the AARP Prescription Discount Program through Walgreens Health Initiatives*
  • Over the counter drugs, vitamins, personal care products and more
  • Medicare Part B-reimbursed diabetes testing and respiratory supplies

*Important: The AARP® Prescription Discount Program, provided by Walgreens Health Initiatives, is not insurance, nor does it replace Medicare Part D prescription drug insurance, and is only intended to provide discounts on prescription drugs that are not covered by Part D or another third party payor. This program is not a Medicare Part D prescription drug plan. Members should always present their Part D cards first to the pharmacist.

Prescription drugs – The prescription drug discount program can help members manage their prescription drug costs for those drugs not covered by Part D. Members can realize exclusive savings on FDA approved medications at participating retail network pharmacies as well as through Walgreens mail service.
